DMA West and Wales champions the interests of the data and marketing community, aiming to connect marketers with guidance and educate through networking and knowledge sharing.
Here’s the latest from around the community:
As part of our neurodiversity initiative, which piloted in the West and Wales region in 2017, DMA Talent has launched their ADHD Employer Guide, helping employers to understand ADHD and its potential to diversify and expand the pool of talent available.
Young talent in the region now have access to the DMA Student Membership, which allows students and apprentices the opportunity to boost their marketing and data knowledge while improving their employment prospects. Benefits include access to the IDM Award in GDPR and 24/7 online resources curated by the DMA's community of award-winning industry creatives, marketers, business leaders and tutors.

Another learning opportunity for marketers of all ages is the IDM’s new online course: AI and Machine Learning for Marketers. AI and data science are bringing smarter ways of working to the marketing industry and, in response, we’re delighted to offer our new course in partnership with the Southampton Data Science Academy (SDSA). Self-paced and designed to fit alongside a normal working week, the course includes world-class 1:1 and group tutoring led by Dame Wendy Hall, the UK’s AI Skills Champion. Sign up, here.
